I own one (2016).. Here's what I learned about these (I researched the hell out of it before buying one). They tend to get a bad rep because the early years they used a jatco CVT transmission (which would overheat and fall apart) from 2007 to 2014. After fiat took over they switched the transmission to a 6spd auto made by hyundai (which I could find 0 problems with). Now with that being said, they do have problems. Namely front end parts (ball joints, tie rod ends etc.). This will be a car that will require more maintenance than normal, but the dirt cheap cost of these may balance out. Keep in mind though these depreciate like hell so don't overpay for one or finance negative equity.
